Our family has visited Worlds of Fun in Kansas City several times over the past few years, but we’ve never visited the Oceans of Fun side. I was so excited to take my kids for their first time and my first visit in almost 25 years! Here are some of our favorite water adventures and tips for your visit to Oceans of Fun.


One Admission for Two Parks
Pay one park admission and enjoy both Worlds of Fun AND Oceans of Fun all day! We started early and rode a few rides, ate lunch and then changed into swimsuits to play in the water the rest of our trip. There are changing stations conveniently located at Oceans of Fun so you can get ready to swim anytime during your visit. Check out the new rides and discounts for the 2017 season.

Slides, slides and more slides!
If you love the thrill of water slides, Oceans of Fun has you covered. From Predator’s Plunge (a near vertical drop) to the Typhoon (a 400 foot humpback slide), there are plenty of slide adventures. Your entire family can even enjoy Hurricane Falls water slide in a 4-person water raft!oceans-fo-fun-slides

Paradise Falls
This is an amazing play area with multiple water slides, a giant bucket of water that dumps every 5 minutes and many water features. My kids could have spent all day at Paradise Falls. They had a blast! oceans-of-fun-paradise-falls

Lazy River

Surf City Wave Pool – This is a zero entry depth giant pool with huge waves every 10 minutes. Grab an inner tube or swim in for some fun and a chance to cool off in the pool.

  • Lounge Chairs – Throughout Oceans of Fun there are hundreds of lounge chairs to set your towels or just relax in the sun.
